🎶 “Do you wanna take a picture of some snow, man?” 🎶
In 1885, pioneering microphotographer Wilson “Snowflake” Bentley became the first person to capture a single snow crystal on film.
Bentley captured 5,000 images of snowflakes—no two alike—by using this method:
🥶 Wait outside for snow to fall
🪶 Use a feather to handle fallen flakes
🔬 Use a camera connected to a microscope and capture flakes after a minute and a half exposure.
